Chasewater Railway Museum – our latest item

Chasewater Railway Museum

Our latest item

DSCF2492

Thanks to Rob Cadman, who spotted the item on ebay, we were able to obtain, at a reasonable price, a small wagon repair plate somewhat unusually produced in a lead material, and CRC (Cannock & Rugeley Colliery) in origin, when they replaced an ex Midland Railway wagon – number 74545  6-1943.  Size, approximately 6″x 4″ .  Very likely this was a 12 ton coal wagon but this is not yet verified.

Many of these old Midland Railway wagons were withdrawn in the 1920s and 30s and replaced by the LMS.

No. 136 LMS Boundary Marker

Another item of local interest – an LMS marker post marking the boundary of the canal after the canal had been bought out by the railway. From the Anglesey Extension of the Wyrley & Essington Canal, near the aqueduct by the A5 road.
From memory, this post cannot have been as heavy as some in our possession as it has been taken from the rack for the photo!!
